It doesn't mean that. It means: "Look in /var/log/XFree86.0.log, and
find the line that begins "(==) Using config file:". The rest of this
line will be the filename of the config file that X is using." Like

$ grep 'Using config file' /var/log/XFree86.0.log
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config"

This is NOT how you tell X what file to use. It IS how X tells YOU
what file it is using, so you know which one to edit.
